dev@httpd.apache.org is the mailing list.  I am going on vacation, though, so I
have had to unsubscribe.

Psychopath -- you are wrong on all counts.  There are many cases when a
well-configured server has a _much_ better idea of the content type than we do
(think something as easy as sending an HTML file as text/plain on purpose to
allow people to view the source easily without relying on the browser UI).

What you're suggesting is that every browser just act like IE, which would be a
sad thing indeed for content authors and users both.
